The Province of Manitoba is dedicating $34,138.22 to the Town of Ste. Anne through the Municipal Road Repair Fund to aid in the repair of potholes and other road damage. This comes as part of our government’s $15 million commitment to 137 municipalities across Manitoba to repair and maintain damaged roads.
This funding will help our municipalities deal with the increased costs of road maintenance brought on by this unexpected weather. These unexpected weather events have caused a significant increase in damage to our roads, and our government is committed to aiding municipalities in offsetting the associated costs.
Above-average precipitation and colder-than-average temperatures have caused a substantial increase in the number and severity of potholes on Manitoban roads. This one-time grant program will provide municipalities across Manitoba with funding for road construction, rehabilitation and preservation projects.
